Salee Allawi

On November 7, 2006, Salee, a nine-year-old girl, was playing outside her home with her brother, cousin and some friends. US jets circled overhead. Then they fired three missiles, apparently at passenger vehicles. One missile detonated near the children. No More Victims brought Salee to Shriner’s Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina, where doctors amputated a section of her leg and fitted her with double prostheses. Brave New Films helped fund Salee’s travel and care with their Mother’s Day for Peace Campaign.

A large team of local volunteers banded together to make sure Salee got the care she needed. After Salee returned home, organizers in Greenville (SC) and Asheville (NC) raised funds for her second trip to the States. A high school group from Carmel sold bracelets to help Salee. No More Victims brought Salee back to Greenville for follow up prosthetic care in 2009 and again in 2011.
